Over the last 25 years we have owned and raced the following boats, P16, P19, H20, F16. We have been out of sailing about 4 years and miss it too much. Though about a H16 but decided against the work required to only do 4 races a year. Decided to get a Wave just to be able to get back on the water without much work.
Found a 2004 Wave Classic that has the inside rails so the club tramp will fit, in excellent condition with trailer.
This model has the metal rudder castings with a flexible fiber joint to connect to the tiller cross bar.
Does anyone know if the H20 tiller connector kit from Murray's item number 07-1953 fits my boat? It looks like i would just have to cut my cross bar a little to get it to fit as long as the cross bar tube ID is correct.
Is it worth it to get a tiller? I am used to using one but not sure if it is necessary on the wave since my tiller cross bar is in front of the blocks.
I hate rudder slop. I shimmed the rudders around the bolts so the slop is gone there, but when the rudder is down there is still slop against the bottom part of the casting. Has anyone shimmed the inside of the bottom part of the casting to eliminate rudder slop?
I have the 10 hole adjuster on order so i can rake the mast but will wait to see if I need the club shrouds.
Plan on racing in October after i learn the boat a little.
